The University places emphasis on enabling students to develop the independent learning capabilities that will equip you for lifelong learning and future employment, as well as academic achievement. A mixture of independent study, teaching and academic support through the personal academic tutoring system enables you to reflect on progress and build up a profile of skills, achievements and experiences that will enable you to flourish and be successful. You are taught through a combination of seminars, interactive lectures, tutorial groups and learning sets alongside various digital technologies such as Blackboard, Twitter and You Tube.
In addition, meetings with personal academic tutors (PATs) are scheduled on at least 4 occasions in the first year and three occasions in each of the other years of a course. The Sport Business Management course supports your PAT sessions throughout your time at University with a personal academic journal which you receive within induction week and you also have access to other resources within your year group Blackboard page.
You have an opportunity to engage in a number of modules where scenario and case study approach are utilised to contextualise theory and practice and students are encouraged to engage through discussion and group work. This interactive approach encourages an applied approach from theory to practical 'real-world' application which enhance academic and employability skills.
